The aromas are light with notes of herb, citrus and tropical fruit. The palate is a bit more generous, showing pleasing herb and tropical fruit notes accented by tart acidity. —S.S.

Single Vineyards 2015 Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling

Wine Enthusiast, 2016

88 Points - December 1

Still settling into the bottle, this wine is aromatically quiet, with notes of white flowers and pear. It drinks off dry, with generous amounts of stone-fruit flavors. If the aromas blossom, it could move up a notch as the flavors are quite well proportioned. —S.S.

The aromas are exuberant, with appealing notes of apricot, pineapple, honey, white flowers and citrus. The citrus and tropical-fruit flavors are rich yet elegant, topped by a lengthy finish. —S.S.

Single Vineyards 2015 Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling

Wine & Spirits, 2016

91 Points - December 1

Remarkably pure and juicy, this is broad at the outset, with a scent of lemon and ripe apple. The flavors are creamy and ripe at first pass, but also floral and lifted as they gather momentum on the palate, shored up with a lemony spritz. A great value.

Columbia Valley 2015 Pinot Gris

Wine Spectator, 2016

87 Points, “Best Value” - November 30

Light and soft, with pretty pear and apricot flavors on a delicate frame, finishing with a slightly nubby texture. Drink now. 135,400 cases made.—H.S.

Eroica 2014 Eroica Riesling

Wine Spectator, 2016

89 Points - November 30

This off-dry, spicy style weaves pepper and allspice notes through the grapefruit flavors at the core, dancing lightly yet intensely on the finish.

Columbia Valley 2015 Dry Riesling

Vinous Media, 2016

87 Points - November 29

Very pale, bright yellow. Reticent aromas of lemon, melon, peach, licorice and mint could use a bit more verve. Just a touch of sweetness here, supported by crisp acidity. Fresher and cleaner in the mouth than on the nose but a wine of modest nuance and intensity.

Single Vineyards 2015 Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling

Vinous Media, 2016

87 Points - November 29

Slightly stunted aromas of peach and tropical fruits. Supple, rich and moderately sweet, but with little grip or nuance to its very ripe stone fruit flavors. Easy to drink but lacks distinction. A bit of alcoholic warmth throughout.

Single Vineyards 2014 Horse Heaven Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Vinous Media, 2016

90 Points - November 29

"... Juicy, tangy Sauvignon Blanc with lovely definition and acidity to its brisk grapefruit and lemon peel flavors. This lightly saline wine is firm but not at all hard-edged, finishing adamantly dry and persistent, with lurking richness and lingering ginger and quinine notes. An excellent vintage for this bottling."

Ethos Reserve 2014 Ethos Reserve Late Harvest Riesling

Vinous Media, 2016

88 Points - November 29

Medium yellow. Slightly metallic peach and pineapple fruit salad aromas. Very sweet and a bit overbearing but not unctuous or thick. The very ripe fruit salad flavors display modest nuance and grip. A bit confectionery for my taste.

Ethos Reserve 2014 Ethos Reserve Chardonnay

Vinous Media, 2016

90 Points - November 29

Bright, green-tinged yellow. Burgundian scents of lemon drop, ginger and hazelnut complicated by a sexy reductive leesy element. Supple, sweet, lightly saline nectarine and peach flavors are accented by spices. Longer and firmer than the Canoe Ridge Chardonnay, even a touch hard-edged today...

Single Vineyards 2014 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay

Vinous Media, 2016

88 Points - November 29

Pale, bright yellow. Lemon drop, ginger, quinine, pungent herbs and mint on the nose. Enters the mouth with a lightly saline umami quality but turns a bit tart and dry-edged in the middle, offering flavors of ginger, lemon drop, grapefruit zest and vanillin oak...

Single Vineyards 2014 Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay

Vinous Media, 2016

90 Points - November 29

Bright, pale, yellow-tinged gold. Fresh apple and peach aromas are lifted by medicinal herbs and a gingery top note. Concentrated, salty and dry, conveying a strong impression of soil tones to its creamy, ripe stone fruit flavors...

Ethos Reserve 2013 Ethos Reserve Syrah

Vinous Media, 2016

91 Points - November 29

Dark, bright ruby. Urgent crushed dark berries and a note of roast coffee reduction on the nose, with black raspberry emerging with aeration. Juicy, penetrating Syrah with crushed blackberry and mineral flavors complicated by a hint of game. Finishes firmly tannic but with plenty of juicy fruit.

Ethos Reserve 2013 Ethos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Vinous Media, 2016

90 Points - November 29

Bright medium ruby. Dark raspberry, black cherry, menthol and cola on the slightly musky, oaky nose. Concentrated and very ripe, showing just enough juicy lift and energy to its flavors of black cherry, dark berries, spices and chocolate.

Single Vineyards 2013 Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Vinous Media, 2016

90 Points - November 29

Dark ruby. Musky aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice, tobacco and game, plus a sexy oak note of coffee. Creamy dark berry, bitter chocolate and mocha flavors are obviously very ripe but display good inner-mouth energy. The building tannins are firm without turning dry. Finishes with attractive spicy lift.

Single Vineyards 2013 Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot

Vinous Media, 2016

88 Points - November 29

Bright, moderately saturated red. Musky reduction to the aromas of cherry, raspberry and mocha, along with a distinctly herbaceous menthol element and strong oakiness. Smooth, plush and broad, in a ripe, slightly warm style, with good sweetness and just enough acidity for balance...
